Beautiful day down here today. Went to bed with rain hammering on the window, woke to a lovely winters day! Apparently there's a pretty strong blow coming through tonight tho!

It really is nice not to have a boat to worry about at this time of year!!

got to be honest, pic was taken a couple of weeks ago, looking across the marine lake at West Kirby towards Point Of Ayr, Nth Wales, was a craking day for boating but I was only having a stroll in the fresh air

Its been a nice winters day here today, snowed heavy last night but all gone now, still touch chilly though, guess rib tubes will be a little floppy at the moment

You have certainly got it better than up here biffer. Took my granddaughter out for a play in the snow this afternoon. Rain and high winds is forecast for tonight so it may well be gone in the morning.

To make things worse the weight from the snow last night has badly ripped the cover on my rib Been and got a cheapo cover from B+Q, but that will probably be ripped to shreds by morning with the incoming winds.

I can recommend Brooke's Tarpaulins, Penmeanmawr, they did some repairs on out cover last spring, excellent job and vey quick too. Long way from home for you, but they can use your old cover as a template and add any mods you want
